A particular sauce? Or what?

red sauce mostly.

I had this with DS, it didn't last long and I reasoned that broccoli with ketchup was better than no broccoli at all. It has lots of antioxidents in it - don't worry.

tomato ketchup you mean? Give it to him! Blimey. DS has had ketchup with most things for ages. As Squiffy says it has got some quite good stuff in it. I get organic/low sugar stuff to salve the old conscience smile

my ds is going through this phase.

I've taken to giving him salsa in a bid to be slightly more healthy.

don't forget as adults we have endured long years of social conditioning which mean we feel sandwich does not = tomato ketchup. But there's no reason for that really. If they like it, why not IMO.

a teaspoon a day is very beneficial apparently

ds and dd both do this, I get the lower salt/sugar stuff and let them have it. As squiffy says broccoli and ketchup better than no broccoli. It is annoying though, ds is known to ask for a bacon sandwich with ketchup and no bacon hmm

It has lypocene in it which is a great antioxidant.

Saw a programme about a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon who ate about a tube of ketchup a day to keep his skin youthful! Apparently it really works. So wouldnt worry. But would change to low sugare and salt.
